I like snails.

Here is a link to give you the information that you need.

http://animals.about.com/od/mollusks/ig/World-of-Snails/Reproduction.htm



Here is a summary from the link.

Estivation

Snails are usually active in the summer, but if it gets too warm or too dry for them, they  . . .  retreat into their shell . . .  mucous membrane dries over the opening of their shell, . . . .

Hibernation
In late autumn when temperatures drop, snails go into hibernation. . . . They retreat into their shell and seal its opening with a thin layer of white chalk. When spring comes (and with it rain and warmth), the snail wakes and pushes the chalk seal to open the shell once again . . .

I've just thought: are you keeping a snail inside?
If so, I'm pretty sure that you have to use a plant sprayer to simulate the morning dew or the snail will go into estivation mode on acount of the dryness.
